The Framingham State Ram’s hosted the Salem State Vikings Saturday afternoon for some MASCAC action.
Throughout the first half, neither the Rams nor the Vikings could put up a goal.
In the second half, the Rams had a few chances to score off of corner kicks, but couldn’t finish.
Sixty-five minutes into play, Shelly Nardi took a corner kick that was too wide for the offense to make contact. Minutes later, Melissa Sybertz headed a corner-kick that went too high and over the net.
Seventy-two minutes into play, the Vikings scored the only goal of the game. Casey McFall carried the ball down left field, cut in, and had a shot on net. The Rams goalie, Jennifer Stevens, tried to block the shot and ending up grabbing the ball, but it had already crossed the goal line, resulting in a goal.
Although the Rams outshot the Vikings 13-9, they could not pull out the win. The Rams have been shut-out in each of their last three games.
This makes the Ram’s 0-3 in the MASCAC.
